I found a painting that was signed WJ Aylward. It looks like coming to the new world it has American Indians a ship and the capt of the ship is in a boat going towards land. Was hoping someone could help me see if it was real. It also had numbers on the side of the frame. 32729. Any and all info/help would be appreciated. Thanks.


We have what we believe to be an original painting by W.J. Aylward. It is from the Hamburg-Amerika line. It depicts a ship named New York coming into New York harbor, with the Statue of Liberty visible in the left-hand side. I have found many prints of this painting, but can find no information on the value of an orginal. What is interesting is that our painting has something that the prints omit. Nazi flags on the ship. Any idea on how much this painting is worth?

Sorry, Cory. I have no knowledge of a painter who signed himself Graff.

I have a painting done in oil in 1935 havanna cuba of the USS Constitution and am trying to get information on the actual gallery and the artist sighning as Graff. We know its valuable as we've seen many later paintings valued into the 10K range we need to sell to cover funeral costs

Absolutely beautiful! These pictures are brilliant. My favorite is "A Singapore Junk at Sea, from "The Water-life Around Singapore,"from Harper's Monthly Magazine for December 1909." The reason why is because if you look closely, it actually seems like you're looking at the ship through a magnifying glass, or monacle, or piece of glass, or something....very trippy indeed :-)
